  View from Windmill Hill Lookout

At the end of the Uptin Walk there is Flagstaff Hill, just 83 steps up and you're there..........or, 83 steps down and you're not there! It has a seat to rest on and lovely views back towards Town Beach and on to Oxley Beach.
From here it becomes the Doctor's Walk that takes you around to Windmill Hill Lookout and the appropriately named Rocky Beach, a name that highlights the problems associated with surfing around Port, i.e. most of the beaches have rocky reefs and small islands which cause chaos to the wave patterns.
This does not detract from the scenic beauty of the walk however, in fact, it may even enhance it.
